There is a special formula for this, do you know what it is?

Wouldn't the steps be to do: Y2 - Y1 Over X2 - X1

That part I do know, but it's the part that comes after I'm not so sure of
anonymous
  • anonymous
So now you can just pick which ever points you wan as Y2 X2 and so on

Is the answer always supposed to be a fraction?
anonymous
  • anonymous
technically not
anonymous
  • anonymous
for example if you get 10/5 the slope might end up being 5 which would technically be 5/1 in rise over run form. Making 5 rise and 1 run
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sorry the slope will end up being 2*
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, I forgot I was supposed to simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
always, but when you graph the fraction even if you get slope 4 for example you would still move 1 to the right. Did i answer your questions?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes you did. Thank you!
anonymous
  • anonymous
No problem!

  • anonymous
Just one last thought, but it is common for the rise to be negative sometimes right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, but when your simplifying the slope form, if the rise is negative the whole slope is negative just like when the run is negative the whole slope is negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
I see
anonymous
  • anonymous
basically the rise cannot be negative and the run is positive, if one is negative they are both negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
or vise versa
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ahh, I see it now. Thank you
anonymous
  • anonymous
No problem
